    New Nightmare

    I’m pretty sure somebody recommended this film to me. I need to try and remember who it was, so that I can punish them. 

    Maybe I’ve forgotten what it was I liked about the Freddy films, perhaps it’s been too long. Either way, I can say with a great degree of certainty that I did not like this film. Yeah, I get it’s “totally meta”, but it’s also excruciatingly boring. Having seen the premise, I thought that New Nightmare might…

    Yes, God, Yes

    ★★★★

    As somebody who went to a pretty strict catholic school, and graduated in 2001, this movie really brought a lot back!

In many ways Yes, God, Yes is a smarter, more sensitive, but just as funny American Pie with a bit more to say about the world. With a great script (and excellent directorial debut) from Karen Maine, and a fantastic supporting cast, it’s a coming of age dramedy to match some of the best of them. 

    8/10

    Midsommar

    ★★★★★

    It’s only when you watch a horror film shot almost entirely in the daytime that you realise just how much other movies within the genre rely on darkness. Midsommar is dazzlingly bright and colourful, and yet is by far the best horror film to hit screens this year. 

    Following the shocking death of her sister and parents, Dani (Florence Pugh) suffers from severe bouts of anxiety and depression. Her douchey boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor) is only intermittently attentive, and is…
